If you want to be a King…

You have to have a crown, and Reims is the city that was traditional site of the crowning of the kings of France.

That happened in the Cathedral of Reims.

„Our Lady of Reims“ is the major tourist attraction. In total, 33 kings got crowned in Reims, the last one being Charles X in 1825.

Gothic Cathedral has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991.

Reims was founded by Gauls and was the major city during the Roman Empire.

The main square in Reims is the Place Drouet d’Erlon in the city center where are many restaurants, bars, statues and fountains.

If you want to see statue of Joan of Arc you should visit the square Place Cardinal-Luçon.

The oldest monument in Reims is the „Porte the Mars“ , a triumphal arch.

There are many other sites to see in Reims but unfortunately we had just about three hours to spent there,

so we didn’t have the time to see everything we would like to.

Maybe some other time…

Our next stop is Paris!
